InSites Consulting and Columinate join forces
In October 2018, global consumer collaboration & insight agency InSites Consulting announced that Johannesburg-based agency Columinate is joining its ranks. InSites Consulting is among the top 100 largest and top 10 most innovative market research agencies in the world, while Columinate is recognized as South Africa’s first, leading, and largest modern insights agency. After announcing its first acquisition of Sydney-based research agency Direction First less than a year ago, this second acquisition aims to bolster InSites Consulting’s African footprint.
“Today, we anchor our global presence across four continents and eight offices. With the intellectual capital, client network and digital technology which Columinate brings to the table, we will be able to better service the needs of and unlock more benefits for our global clients,”
Kristof De Wulf, co-founder and CEO of InSites Consulting.
“We have been paying close attention to Columinate’s development and growth for the last few years and we can’t imagine a better partner. Considering our many similarities, from a strong cultural and digital DNA to our approach of client service, Columinate feels like the perfect fit,”
Tim Duhamel, co-founder and CSO of InSites Consulting.
“We are fortunate to have such a strong, future-focused partner in InSites Consulting. Together, we can continue pioneering world-first solutions and raise our ambitions to become the leading African modern insights agency. We can’t be happier to be part of the global InSites Consulting powerhouse,”
Henk Pretorius, co-founder and CEO of Columinate.
